RE: Captain Peter Thompson
Capt. Peter Thompson's grave is just East (behind) a big Monroe marker that is North of the old tool shed on your right going North at the intersection of 4 roads in the cemetery. It should be easy to find. I posted another picture on his memorial that may help. Good luck. It does have lichens on it as seen in the picture.

RE: Captain Peter Thompson
I received a message from find a grave that you left me a message, regarding Peter Thompson, but I fail to see how this concerns me. Can you explain?
Thanks, Beryl

Massie/Mill Cemetery
Looking at Massie Mill cemetery for a N.J. woman.
I noticed that Capt. Massie and his wife are not listed on cemetery listing.
I listed them yesterday as I have a Coffin makers records that show Cpt. Massie had a coffin ordered for him on June 19, 1835 and a coffin was ordered for a Mrs. Massie June 22, 1835.
Assumption is that they are buried there too.
Also a Cpt. Williams coffin ordered June 21, 1835. Added him to Massie listing.
Just noticing a William Bradley had coffin ordered June 17, 1835.
Unless these people were shipped back home, only cemetery to be buried in.
Looking at Land records, Cpt. Massie must have gotten land grant for the mill property. There is no record in Marion Co. of him purchasing the mill property.
These records of coffin maker Joseph Miller were given to me by Shelbina Genealogy lady.

Benner Family
Hello! I just got off the phone with Lois Hunsiker, she encouraged me to reach out to you for information on the Benner family.
In the 1840 census I find the first information on my 3rd great grandmother, Elizabeth Benner, my third great uncles, Elias, David, and Christopher Benner, and my 2nd great grandfather, Joseph Benner.
Elizabeth claims she was born in MD and so does Elias and David, Christopher and Joseph were born in Virginia. I have no knowledge of what Elizabeth's maiden name was, and no idea who her husband was. Her husband must of died before 1840, or they separated, as I have nothing on him. If you have any knowledge of Elizabeth especially, I would appreciate it.
Relatives of mine that lived in and around Knox County are Ammons, Baker, Ballenger, Bowls, Bunnell, Childers, Clatt, Clouser, Gardner, Hainline, Hoehle (pronounced Hay-Lee), Hudson, Lewis, McMillen, Olson, Schempp, Sellers, Sparks, Sullivan, Vandolah, and of course Benner! I would love to have copies of anything that you can offer on my family. I live in Tampa, Florida, so I am not able to search for myself.

He was married in 1848-9 to Martha E. Maddux, she died in 1866, so would have been his wife during the Civil war years. He later married Susan Sinclair.

Ella Nelson FAG Memorial # 76087086
I am the grandaughter of Bert Lewis Nelson Find A Grave Memorial # 176474696 and Amanda Elizabeth Young Nelson Find A Grave Memorial # 110103703. I believe Ella Nelson Find A Grave Memorial # 76087086 may be Bert's first wife Ella Hansborough. They had a son Bertram or Bertrude b. about 1901 d. about 1941. I was hoping you can find out. I also would like to thank you for all of the information you have provided for my family. Sincerely Sandra E. Butler

We are the son and the daughter-in-law of Kenneth Richard O'Neal. Would you be willing to transfer care of this record to us? We know our Dad's body was donated to science; however, there is a memorial stone in the Dickerson Run Union Cemetery in Dickerson Run, Fayette County, PA which would be the accurate Find-A-Grave location.

This is our contributor number: #47945727

Thank You,

Kenneth Michael O'Neal and Beth Maria O'Neal

George Shannon and Massie Cemetery
Thanks for the info. Now that I look more closely I see that the "original" maintained by Find A Grave is for a marker only and is not in that cemetery.

I agree with you that the Ancestry ownership has certainly diverged from what Find A Grave was all about for so many years. In fact, I'm not sure they have a real plan for what Find A Grave should be. Their volunteers seem to be all about speed rather than accuracy. Thankfully those of us more concerned with accuracy can keep plugging away to get their messes straightened out, unlike the census records on Ancestry, which only seem to get worse over time. (But they love to brag about how quickly they got the 1940 census records indexed--they had obviously never heard the saying "haste makes waste.")

Good afternoon. I just wanted to let you know that I have posted an additional picture of Louis' headstone. I now have it completely cleaned, re-set and repaired.
